“I feel that he cares about the way that black people feel about him and he would like for black people to like him like they did when he was cool and in rap songs,” West said, addressing whether or not he feels Trump cares about people of color. “And he will do the things that are necessary to make that happen. Because he’s got an ego like the rest of us and he wants to be the greatest president, and he knows that he can’t be the greatest president without the acceptance of the black community. So it’s something that he’s gon’ have to work towards, but we gon’ have to speak to him.”

Kanye West has finally answered the question he was asked by Jimmy Kimmel in a previous interview.  This quote above is from an appearance on Chicago’s WGCI radio station  on August 29th.



Kanye West also addressed another issue and that was his comment that slavery was a choice. The incident occurred on what seemed like an impromptu appearance on the popular media platform. The Chicago rapper struck a nerve with African American with his comment and also probably lost some fans over it.

“I don’t know if I properly apologized for how that slave comment made people feel.    So I want to take this moment right now to say … I’m sorry for people who felt let down by that moment.”

The comment was in response to this quote below from earlier this year.

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years … For 400 years? That sounds like a choice,” West said at the time. “You were there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all. It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned.”

West  has come to realize just how meaningful he is to African Americans by stating how it  “showed me how much black people love me and how much black people count on me and depend on me and I appreciate that.”   He later said the criticism he faces often leaves him feeling like his “voice is not meaningful.”


“When we talk about the Drake thing, it hits me in a really sensitive place, because you hang around people and they come to your house and be around your family and this and that,” West said. “And they get mad about a beat and send you purple demon emojis.”

“we all” have “love for Drake.” “We understand that he got upset about [“The Story of Adidon.”] I feel that it was insensitive for him to, in any way, stress me out in any way after TMZ, while I’m in Wyoming healing, pulling all the pieces together, working on my music. And you know, we’ll reconcile that one day because we got to, because we got work to do, and these voices is just too powerful.”

Drake took to his instagram and posted “THE BOY” 666666666 with purple demon emoji. Well it seems Drizzy hasn’t fully accepted his friend back just yet.

According to Kanye their dispute is over the sample above for Lift Yourself and not from the Pusha T beef song “Story Of Addidon” where Pusha T goes for Drake’s throat.  Kanye  raps a nonsensical toilet “Whoop-di-scoop-di-poop/Poop-di-scoopty/ Scoopty-whoop” in the second half of the song.


The  Chicago’s 107.5 WGCI interview Kanye West revealed this info:

“Drake is a person who loves Kanye West, you’re supposed to be protective of that person at all cost and make sure, ‘Bro, are you good?’ It’s not about being selfish, like ‘I wanted to be on the ‘Lift Yourself’ beat and I wasn’t on it, so now I’m mad about it, and now I’m sending you purple demon emojis.’”
